Smt. Hansaji and Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra
Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. Are rituals part of Yogic lifestyle? Dr. J: In a way, some of them are. Repeating certain thoughts, mentally going over them, these are all Mantras that are very useful. Smt. H: Yes, as I explained earlier, Yogic lifestyle has certain rituals. But we also have a duty towards society, nation and humanity. If it is a good day for another person, we should also share in the joy. Be happy in others' happiness - Mudita. Maitri - friendliness, compassion, these are all Yogic qualities and their expression in a gentle way is good. Q. I am not clear about the difference between rituals and routines. Can you please explain?

Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. I have misbehaved with my near and dear ones. How do I correct my mistakes? Dr. J: Better than saying sorry would be, the next time, when you have to act, act in an understanding way, a kind way. Smt. H: If it is clear that you have done wrong, it is necessary to say sorry and admit your mistake and be humble. But that is not enough. Just sit quietly and think as to why this happened to you? Were you overworked, or expecting more, or not sleeping well or not eating right? There could be many reasons for a lack of tolerance. A person can tolerate anything but tolerance becomes poor and reaction starts because somewhere our state is bad. So saying sorry is very right, that is the beginning because that keeps the door open for all. But doing some research and seeing that you don't make the mistake again, that's where yoga comes into the picture. Q. What do we mean by the term inter-personal relationship?

8th September 2013 - Sunday - Dealing with depression “We all suffer from depression. Otherwise we wouldn't get disturbed. We come to know, listen, but we don’t understand. You see, this ability to understand is a central factor. We give in to negative thoughts. Things are bad, going to the worst and all that kind. So we are a bundle of confusion, doubts, fear; there is no positivity. Unfortunately these have increased and today most of us have this kind of feeling where we take it that the world is going to the dogs, things are not going to get better, we have to just suffer and all that. Yoga begins with positive thinking. If you sit for a few minutes, eyes closed, watching your breathing; a good feeling does come and you get peace, mind is very clear, develop faith. If one can do it regularly, some amount of strength also comes. Those who have problems like depression, fear, they have to begin somewhere. Just thinking and feeling sad is not the answer. So many who have taken to yoga, they do some yoga practices, have good company, talk something better and changes happen. So depression has a good answer – do things, be optimistic.” 9th September 2013 - Monday - Satya

24th August 2013 - Saturday - Purpose of Life “Life and purpose of life. We are living, but why? No chance to think, we just carry on and that creates problems. We sometimes find difficulties, sometimes don’t know how to overcome them. We should spend a little time to try to understand more about us. That’s the idea today.” 25th August 2013 - Sunday - Change Yourself

Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit "Let's understand our role in any situation, how we can help ourselves maintain a balanced state of mind. While we perform our work, others too perform their own work. Everything has its own place, everything has its own need, that’s why it's there. So we should carry on. And carry on happily, carry on with joy, with enthusiasm. Be very creative, find out (for yourself) in the same very situation, what can you do, so that you may still enjoy it more and so on. Maintaining a balanced state of mind should be our primary goal, that no matter what happens, I should not lose my balance. This means that I have to practice self-discipline; like a watchman who does not allow bad elements to enter, similarly I have to watch myself and not allow any thoughts that may make me lose my balance. But for that, I have to attend to many areas.
